ASUS tends to bundle their AMD based motherboards in green boxes and their Intel based motherboards in blue boxes. This is no exception as they put the M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard into a green box. They have the name for their Xtreme Design series along with Turbo Key, Anti-EMI Protection, and Stack Cool on the left side of the box. The right side of the box has the GPU NOS logo.

The back of the box has a picture of the motherboard along with the main features of the board including 8+2 phase, EPU and GPU NOS. Opening the box up we find that ASUS has put the manual and Driver CD on the right side of a cardboard tray and the accessories on the left side. Under the tray is where the motherboard lies safely ensconced in a anti-static bag. ASUS includes 4 SATA Data cables, enough to get started.

The Driver CD itself contains the various drivers for the motherboard, Nortonís Internet Security Trial version, and the various ASUS utilities. TurboV is their overclocking utility that gives control over the clock speeds, voltages and more. There are three preset profiles:: Jet Plane and Rocket. Jet Plane sets the clock speed for the CPU at 206MHz. Rocket sets it at 210MHz, which is a 5% increase in clock speed.
